Vintage Easter Printables, Show This Weekend, New Samples & Welcome New DT Member!

Hi Everyone,
I have a New 2012 Easter Printable Gift for you and links to all our previous Easter - Spring Printables!  Plus - a peek at our new double sided Easter Scraps at the printers now, a coupon for the Abbotsford, BC Show we are at this weekend, some beautiful new samples and I would love for you to Welcome our New DT Member Marilyn aka - Busy Martha!

Here is our New 2012 Easter Printable Gift. Just click on the image with the left side of your mouse until it gets as large as possible and right click it to save to a picture file. You could cut the kids out if you just wanted the pretty church scene. 

Here is a pretty Heartwarming Vintage Printable Easter page with singing children and sheet music. Just click on the link to get the actual high res image.

I adore this pretty Easter Angel Printable Postcard we gave away a few years ago. Click on the link to get the high res image.

Here is our sweet April Joy Printable Poem you may have missed that we gave as a gift last year

I'm trying to stay ahead on tasks so I've also included our May Day Heartwarming Vintage Free Printable from a couple of years ago. Just click on the link to get the high res image.

 I'm not sure if I should show you our New Easter Scraps yet as they are currently at the printers and we need to still need to check the color proofs tomorrow before they start printing them. I know I said I was trying to discontinue stuff but our Scraps and Clear Stamps are our biggest sellers - so until some company comes along and buys me out (so we can focus on designing new stuff) I need to keep stock and we only have 50 of the old single sided Easter Scraps left  and on SALE for $1.99!  These NEW Double Sided Easter Scraps will be $3.50 and both sides of this 8 x 19" cardstock sheet turned out adorable!  Hopefully in stock in less than 2 weeks!

If you live in the greater Vancouver area I hope you can come see us the Creative Stitches - Sewing Craft Show this Fri - Sat, Mar 23 - 24 at the Abbotsford Tradex Complex!  We will have a free gift for you with any purchase over $20.00 and we are bring an amazing amount of goodies in New, Clearance and Old Vintage stuff for our Flea Market Table!  I also updated our 2012 Show List on the right side of the blog.
I've been so busy and everything is in 'limbo' as many of you know I want to sell or change the business in some way so I have a more 'normal' life and we can focus on what we love most - creating & designing new products. I have a few companies in mind and will keep you posted.   In the meantime I never gave a proper farewell to many of our past DT Ladies but I will post a Design Team Farewell and include some of their coolest projects from last year ASAP!  I was able to create a section on the right side of the Blog with Past DT Member Crafty Secrets Galleries with 3 ladies who have a category for our projects, Linda Duke, Heidi Blankenship and Marisa Grosson! 

I've also updated the Blog with our Current DT List and I would love for you to Welcome our New Design Team Member Marilyn, aka Busy Martha from Victoria BC.  I posted her cute Baseball card last week and the photo below is of Marilyn hiding behind the Recipe Album she created using our Domestic Goddess Scraps.
Here is an ATC Card Marilyn also posted on her blog using one of the cute Campbell's kids from our Kitchen Classics Stamp set.

It was sad to loose so many talented DT Ladies but change encourages growth.  I am happy to say Vicki, Pam, Julie are staying - plus Michele Kovack, (one of our DT ladies since 2007)!  You have to check out the adorable birdy card she created with our New Sing For Joy Clear Art Stamp Set!  You can see more photos and get all the details HERE on Michele's Blog.  I love the little pin she made!

 We are also going to have Past and New Guest Designers - plus start a Crafty Secrets Linky Party the 1st Monday of each month where you can add any project you've created using our products, add a link to your blog and be entered to win a Gift Certificate!   So stay tune for exciting updates.

I also wanted to show you this sweet card that Olga sent me from France using our Babyland Vintage Cuts. You can also see the card on her blog but will need a translator as she is Russian.

Lastly, I wanted to show you a cute egg decorating idea from Lucy at Craftberry Bush and how she used our Queen Bee Stamp Set to stamp on a paper napkin and decoupage it to an egg. Lucy (who also made this beautiful birthday decor using our Vintage CD #1)  is also going to be doing a Giveaway for our products next week on her blog! 

Imagine the designs, words and colors you could use on eggs, plus if you are using Clear Stamps like ours you can also stamp right on eggs or other curved surfaces - just don't stick the stamp on a block. Vicki just held our book print border stamp  in her hand to stamp  these eggs.

Until next time, wishing you joy and creativity!
